Although it was far from an obscure MMORPG beforehand, Final Fantasy 14's is currently enjoying its time in the spotlight, courtesy of a wave of new players. With a new expansion on the horizon, keeping track of the FFXIV server status helps with planning your play sessions around the dreaded maintenance schedule that takes the game offline.
Every MMORPG goes offline when updates or hotfixes need to be applied. Unexpected downtime isn't outside of the realm of possibility either, which is why this article aims to keep track of the FFXIV server status and inform you about the game's maintenance timer and potential extensions.
